director for the republican national committee. dana loesch, who is a talk radio host and tea party activist. and matt welsh, who's editor in chief of "reason," and he's also author of the book "the declaration of independence: how libertarianism politics can fix what's wrong with america." great to have all you guys here today. [ applause ] and shawn, i know you're shawn spicer. i know that anyway. but let me start with you. republicans are fighting right now, particularly in the house and senate, over whether or not to defund obama care, even if it means shutting down significant portions of the government. good idea, bad idea? >> i think in general it's a good idea. our party is united as far as getting rid of obama care. we recognize the fact that more americans are losing their health care, costs are going up. the problems continue with the imation of obama. what i think we have a robust difference on is the tactic on how to make that happen. some people believe that we can defund it through the continuing resolution process. some people believe that you're not able to do that
guilfoyle, bob beckel, dana perino, and greg gutfeld. it is 5:00 in new york city. as you read in the paper, it is "the five"! so last week we told you about the brutal beating of a 13-year-old white kid by three african-american teens on a school bus in florida. on "the five," we have been calling for civil rights leaders and the president to speak publicly about the issue. still haven't heard a word from al sharpton, president obama, eric holder, or the naacp, but over the weekend, rev. jesse jackson stepped up to the plate and said this. >> we tried to make contact of the family of the kids because we should discourage people attacking people, whether black, white, white, black, people should stop attacking people. you must learn to live together respectfully in a civilized way, and if it comes black white white black, it makes matters worse, it does not make it better. >> took awhile, but give credit where credit is due. ref recommended jesse jackson steppedd made a comment. >> he was in africa and had been away. he said black white, white black, he went to the core of the thing and sai
beckal and dana perino and greg gutfeld. this is "the five." >> oprah winfrey's highly anticipated movie "the butler" opens up nationwide tonight. it is about cecil gains, after african-american butler who worked for presidents. oprah says it brings context to the race discussion. take a look. >> you know he got that job himself. the white house called him. he didn't call the white house. >> i want to hear all of the stories. >> i don't know how many stories you will hear. they swore him to some secret code. >> get the hell out. >> i'm sorry, mr. butler, i didn't mean to make fun of your hero. >> a great story, but for some reason oprah has been all over town talking about race the last couple weeks. here she is talking about people using the n-word. >> a lot of people if they think they are not using the n-word themselves they physically are not using the n-word themselves and they do not harbor ill will toward black people that it is not racist. to me it is ridiculous to look at that case and not to think that race was involved. >> and now here she is comparing trayvon martin to emmitt
: rocky mountain mike for some reason has decided to combine turtle sex, dana loesch, cody the screaming dog and barry white. why not? >> because he can. ♪ >> stephanie: that's weird. [dana loesch screaming] >> wow. >> like having sex with mitch mcconnell. >> stephanie: where's cody? there he is. wow! wow! >> okay. >> stephanie: this is saying something but of all of the weird things rocky mountain mike has sent us, that's the weirdest. >> that's the weirdest. ♪ let's hear it for the boy ♪ let's give the boy a hand >> stephanie: wow! all right then. so i knew -- [ ♪ "nbc nightly news" ] yesterday on "meet the press," what do you call it? gregory, noted tool says does this mean that edward snowden has won? okay. >> yes, he's won fabulous prizes! >> stephanie: right. >> a lifetime supply of borsch maybe. >> stephanie: the president obviously -- and again, we've said this over and over again. should stuff be looked at, yes. but the president said exactly what i thought. >> obama: i don't think snowden was a patriot. as i said in my opening remarks, i called for a thorough review of
strings. >> a lot to talk about with david gergen, chief white house correspondent jessica yellin and dana bash. jessica, we heard the president make this a promise that it's going to become more transparent. he says it was already happening before the snowden leaks. but is that really realistic? >> well, as you point out, wolf, he did say that he wanted more transparency back in may. he said that. that was right before edward snowden's first leak was in june. so his assertion is that the snowden leaks just sped up a process that was going to happen any way. well, we also have to take a bigger look at the big picture, which is did snowden actually lead to these new safeguards he put in place? we know that two democratic senators have been calling for more transparency and even reforms for more than a year now. sn when the head of the intelligence community went before congress, he's admitted now that he was less than truthful in talking about them. so that was all before snowden. would this have happened without snowden? we can't know, the train has left the station, but it does seem to ha
for the republican national committee and dana lash, host and tea party activist and matt, author of the book "the declaration of independents," how libertarianism and politics can fix what's wrong with america. glad to have all of you guys there. >> i know you're sean spicer. i know that any. let me start with you, republicans are fight right now, particularly in the house and senate whether or not to de-fund obamacare even if it means shutting down significant portions of the government. good idea or bad idea? >> in general a good idea. our party is united as far as getting rid of obamacare. we recognize the fact more americans are losing their health care, costs are going up, the problems continue with the implementation of obamacare. what i think we have a robust difference on is the tactic how to make that happen. some people believe we can de-fund it through the continuing resolution process. some people believe you're not able to do that because of the way the funding is structured in terms of mandatory spending. if we can get resolution it should be done, i think they agree it should be de
completely different in the nsa -- >> but he said it so well. >> day in a, talk about -- dana, what do you think of his remarks? did it come too late? he covered a lot of ground. >> okay. i think it was three weeks too late. i would have said that he should have done this press conference about three weeks ago because when he said that all of these things in washington were phony scandals, one of them that he's talking about is the nsa issue. i have defended the president on all this and i keep asking, could you help us defend you. he did something today, he made very clear he's gog have four-point plan and talked about the four-point plan. it's amazing when you have unemployment at what it is, the part-time jobs issue, he wants to talk about the middle class and he's talking about section 215 of the patriot act? we are down way, way, way down in the weeds. i think again, he could have done it three weeks ago. i would have said he should have done more about the middle class up at the top. i don't think the announcement needed to be about this. >> before he got smacked around by the presid
. this came during a meeting with a delegation of syrian expatriates. dana bash is joining us on the phone. we know there have been some conference calls between the white house and republicans and democrats. what are you hearing? >> that's right. they're going to take place our understanding is in a couple hours with at least on the senate side with republicans and democrats, but we also just learned that tomorrow, that's sunday, the white house is offering or at least administration officials are offering to come to capitol hill on a sunday to offer a classified briefing on the intelligence that the u.s. has on syria's chemical weapons to any and all members who are in town. sunday is labor day weekend. unclear how many will be able to make it in but it's significant for several reasons. one is that members of congress have been real chomping at the bit to get, understandably, to get information in a classified way that makes them feel comfortable that any kind of military strikes would be justified, but also this is just tea leaf reading here, it might be questionable whether or not they wo
, as opposed to the nsa surveillance program. dana, what is the reaction on capitol hill? i know the lawmakers are in recess, on vacation, the president is going on vacation tomorrow but we saw what speaker bayner said, suggesting the president was concerned about saving face than defending the programs. >> that's right. look, i mean, this is kind of the one issue or few issues, i should say where republicans are supportive of the president. this nsa program they say has been helpful and they have been kind of his biggest cheerleaders on this while the democrats, many of the democrats, as jessica was just talking to, leading liberal democratic senators have been maybe the most vocal in terms of criticism. this changed that a little bit. but one thing i would say about peter king, one of the lawmakers you were talking about, he said the president is on an apology tour. that illustrates the flight within the republican party because peter king, as you know is making noise about being president and he's trying to push the wing of the republican party that is more hockish against those on the repu
and causing a lot of problems for the people in the area who are wearing masks or ban danas to keep the smoke and ash out of their lungs. >> the beaver creek fire has te voured acres and is not under control. the fire fighters are challenged by the same type of fire tornados or fire whorls that are whipping around and spreading flames in the other parts of the western u.s. 42 wildfires are raging in 11 states from alaska down to arizona, the heat and drought speeding the pace of this year's fire season, already one of the deadliest on record, 31 killed so far. and the burning expected to last for several more weeks. abc news, denver. >>> ginger zee is tracking the conditions as fire fighters battle those places. >> hey, dan, not good. i want to show, idaho and utah, we're focused on those, hot and dry through today. red flag watches, and fire warnings for california and other states because of thunderstorms. it's good, but bittersweet, the storm, gusty winds and more lightning for more fires. we have to go to the other side of the country. we were talking about the flooding. panama city looke
's go to capitol hill. dana bash is standing by. even before the president has spoken, tan ndana, some republi already starting with some preemptive reaction, shall we call it. >> reporter: that's right. it's going on so far in private in conversations that i've had with some republicans here on capitol hill. the nsa surveillance program is one of the few areas where you've actually seen republicans agree with the president. think that this program is the right thing to do for american security. so expect republicans to say that they're concerned about what jessica reported, widening the transparency of this program. because they say the problem isn't the program, it's the way the president has communicated about it or maybe the better way to say it, has not communicated about it. i think you're going to see some criticism, maybe skepticism on the republican side. the whole question, though, is what democrats are going to do. because they have been probably the most vocal critics of this program. particularly those on the left. you have senators like mark udall of colorado. i just spok
was the voice of god? dana howard, the voice of god. thank you, dana howard. we will be hearing from peter lee. herb schwartz, the regional director of the health and services representing the obama administration in our region. bagarcia. to ben honor it is for me here with them because i know of their leadership and their work. of small and founder business majority -- without him it would be impossible to pass the affordable care act act. thank you for your tremendous work on that.

. firefighters are getting a helping hand from the weather let's check in with dana. >> hi, shan n no, unfortunately we are dealing with dry, warm and gusty conditions that are not helping firefighters in this vulnerable area. 77 as your daytime high, but wind gusts 30 to 40 miles per hour and because this fire is so big it can be very erratic and actually create its own weather conditions and its own weather gusts, the gusts of wind. firefighters will have to be careful trying to contain this and the mountainous terrain. it is rough to get in there. on monday the winds calm down a little bit. but it is only 7% contained. we think it is going to be with us certainly for much of the workweek. shannon, take a look here. we have over 50 fires burning across the west including the latest in yosemite. we will track itment back to you. >> a tough situation. thank you very much. >>> a battle is brewing over the administration. planning to fund planned parenthood to help with obamacare. and a 72-year-old man suspected of going on a shooting rampage that left at least two people dead. what ma
that ft. leavenworth will do that. it looks like dana coombs will have to sue the army or petition on medical grounds to get bradley manning transferred to a federal prison where perhaps he could get that therapy because due to army and d.o.d. regulations, ft. leaven swort not going to give that hormone therapy much less sex reassignment surgery. carol? >> if he did get this treatment, this hormone replacement therapy, who would pay for it? >> it would be the government. it would be the taxpayers. that's the way it is for any prisoner. basically, if you're a prisoner, the state or the government is responsible for your medical care because you can't fund your own medical care. there have been some rulings in the past where federal courts have struck down laws in which some states try to prohibit these taxpayer-funded hormone therapy regimens. again, some of the courts have struck those down saying you can't do that. and some prisoners have been receiving hormone therapy. sexual reassignment surgery is still relatively new. that also has been looked on somewhat favorably by some of
wouldn't shut down because of a battle over health care. dana bash is watching what's going on, getting reaction to the news conference. is this really what the republicans are threatening to do, shut down the government to try to kill obama care? >> reporter: some are absolutely. i spoke with ted cruz, the republican senator for texas. he said before leaving for recess that he believes if th is the most critical, fundamental time for republicans to make good on their promise to appeal obama care by making this threat that the government is going to run out of money by the end of september and they're not going to vote on funding it unless obama care is defunded. and he's taunting fellow republicans saying they're scared, that's why they may not go his way. but they really are split. he's spending all of august with petitions and trying to push republican leaders to go forward on the strategy. but even the most fiscally conservative republicans are saying for many reasons this is not the best way to go. if you take obama care out of this, there are still questions about how republicans
'll be disqualified. and then i tried to describe the people that are already at the post. eugene robinson, dana milbank. all these type. and i said you are probably the most conservative or fair-minded person at the entire "new york times." that's what i said. >> thank you for that. >> but it was as far left as you are, you are probably the most reasonable person, which is why the huffington post probably doesn't like you. >> i don't know where to go with that. >> i have two points who read the allyn sloan piece. >> he better declare. >> but his point was -- >> was it the internet came from the 19th -- >> he was making a very left argument that the internet was a product of the government and, therefore, jeff bezos should be -- >> you guys lost your -- even robert schiller admits that invest investment in infrastructure comes from entrepreneurs. even bono knows it now. >> bono. >> bono? who is bono? >> oh, he's -- >> can i give one irony of that allyn sloan's piece in "fortune." "the washington post" pays to republish that piece in "the washington post." so we'll see how long that lasts. >> jen
similar beginnings, or she could become dana plato. we are hoping she goes in the direction of drew and this is a step in the right direction. >> absolutely. the hope is there. john murray, thank you. >>> new jersey's governor getting high marks from people in that state. he's expected to cruise to another term, but might he have his sights set on the white house? something he said today, maybe, maybe, holds a clue. geoff: i'm the kind of guy who doesn't like being sold to. the last thing i want is to feel like someone is giving me a sales pitch, especially when it comes to my investments. you want a broker you can trust. a lot of guys at the other firms seemed more focused on selling than their clients. that's why i stopped working at my old brokerage and became a financial consultant with charles schwab. avo: what kind of financial consultant are you looking for? talk to us today. then you'll know how uncomfortable it can be.

. >> she broke the twitter. >> how do you hit -- dana pa rene no set me up. >> former white house colleague sweet op-ed in the new hit tweet. >> i am sweating. >> i just tweeted. >> i am in a sweat. >> well -- >> what's going to happen now? is it going to -- >> i'm -- >> i only have one follower. >> i'm going to retweet you. >> yeah. will it hurt? >> a lot of people will see it and then get a lot of hateful tweets. >> awesome. >> michael gerson, saying good-bye to my child the youngster. i put on my best face, but it is the worst thing that time has done to me so far. that moment at the dorm is implied that the kindergarten door, at the gates of summer camp, every ritual of parting and independence. but it comes as surprising as a thief taking what you value most. there is no use in brooding about it. i'm sure my father realized it at a similar moment and i certainly didn't notice or empathi empathize. at first he was a giant who held my hand and filled my sky, a middle-aged man who paid my bills. decades after his passing a much loved shadow. but i can remember the last time i hugged him i
